My 17 year old son began his IFR training at a local university (17 miles from our house) as a freshman this semester. It seems they are short of instructors because he is ready for his stage check and there is a line of students for similar checks. It will be 2 weeks Tuesday since he’s flown and still doesn’t have a check ride scheduled. Is this typical for a university with a BS in aviation? He’s trying to decide to stay there or purse another avenue for his ultimate goal of his ATP license. The tough part about changing is the close proximity of the school.
He did have his private ticket just after turning 17 and the school advisor says it will still take him four years to get the degree. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
